From Innovation Graveyard To Innovation Hotbed

Issue 23

Developing Leaders #23 is focused on how organizations can develop their people to be successful and work well together; and what the industry that researches and supports that is doing. In this issue two innovation experts from the Center for Creative Leadership, David Horth and Jonathan Vehar, explain how their research shows that innovation almost invariably founders in middle management – the ‘innovation graveyard’ as they call it. They also explain how that can be changed.

We cover a fascinating module run at Berkeley which used horses to help executive’s understanding of the impact of their behaviours on their leadership and, with an analysis of GM CEO, Mary Barra’s leadership style, and case studies on programs from BG Group and Boehringer Ingelheim, we hope, as ever, we feed both your curiosity and inform you.
